For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough.

DIY: Spring flower bombs

I don't know if you've heard but ETSY has launched a new DIY site called ETSY STUDIO where you can learn just about anything. Aaaand you can get all the supplies you need to create whatever DIY you choose to make right there on the site.

So, in order to celebrate Spring I thought a post about a wildflower garden from ETSY would be in order so here it is.

These are super easy to make, all you have to do is take 2 tbsps of native wildflower seeds (about 8 packs of seeds) and add them to 1 cup of bentonite clay and 1 cup of sifted compost or potting mix. Add about 1/2 cup of water to make your mixture resemble the texture of thick cookie dough. You must be able to form balls with it.
